ON THE passengers side there is a drain on radiator a 1/4" extension or driver will fit into it. unless radiator has been changed with an aftermarket then it should be in same place but may have different type drain

SOURCE: water leak and water in oil
Water in the oil is never a good sign. You need to have a cylinder leakdown and radiator pressure test done to confirm where the leak is. Sometimes though, the testing may be inconclusive. Either way, you need to have it torn down and checked/repaired. You cannot continue to drive it this way or it will relult in complete loss of your engine.

I think your truck is pretty much the same as mine. Not alot to it. You should have 2 or 4 bolts that hold radiator in place, maybe a few bolts that hold fan shroud in place. To start you'll open hood, have to drain water out of radiator using a petcock, a drain valve at bottom of radiator. Loosen hose clamps on upper and lower radiator hose clamps. Once water is drained you'll have to remove the ends of the two hoses from radiator. The hoses may be kinda welded in place from rust so you may have to twist the ends back and forth until they loosen up. ( When you reinstall hoses, put a thin layer of any kind of grease on the inside of the ends so they can be turned easier. Remove bolts holding fan shroud in place and move it however you have to to give you access to lift radiator up ward and out of engine area. Remove bolts holding radiator and with some wiggling and guiding it should be able to lift it out. It might be tight. If you get a manual at Autozone it should give you better descriptions. Good luck. Please rate this. Thanks

Lay under front of car and look under the radiator. The radiator support/header panel should have a hole in it look up in hole the petcock should be hiding in there. DO NOT LAY UNDER THE CAR WITHOUT THE E_BRAKE ON, please.
